Small Water Systems Orientation and Training Workshop a Hit

Eighteen network HQP decended on Walkerton, ON in December for three days of unique learning at the Walkerton Clean Water Centre. There, they received a firm grounding in water quality assessment and conventional and emerging water treatment approaches. They also visited a local treatment plant and the infamous Well #5, source of the E.coli contamination that killed seven people and made 2,500 ill in the spring of 2000.

The event was funded through RES’EAU-WaterNET and the NSERC Strategic Enhancement Initiative (SNEI) program.
